Variety: Pinot Meunier 

Bottle Size: 500ml

A demure and bright-eyed philosophe on the subject of Champagne, Christophe employs biodynamics, homeopathy, and phytotherapy in his vineyards, which cover 6.5 hectares and are planted 90% to Pinot Meunier. He is a man all-in on his appreciation of all that is nature- with a particular reverence for the moon-and how to exist symbiotically with it.

Christopher Mignon farms a couple of select vineyards in the Valle de Marne to the Pinot Meunier used in this special wine. The average age of the vines are 44 years. Manual is the only method of harvest as all grapes need to be checked for the right maturity. The process of the ratafia, which refers to the style of a sweet liqueur, includes a fortification of alcohol. The liqueur is made from grape must mutated with alcohol made from the local Champagne area. Once the blend is set, ageing for 20 to 30 months begins in vats and oak barrels. This is a delicate, yet robust dessert wine perfect for fruit or cheese based desserts.
